CCFFIf you're like most of us who watched the Oscars the other night you're feeling a little lame for not seeing any of the movies that were nominated for big awards. Maybe you're like me and either saw no movies, or just movies your kids really wanted to see. It happens. Well, because we're not done yet with winter and we still need a way to enjoy ourselves, take a look at Greater Lansing's awesome movie theater venues and get yourself caught up on the big movies that clean-up at the 2015 Oscars. Lucky for you if youre in the Greater Lansing area you have some awesome movie theaters from which to choose for your kick back and relax cinema experience.

NCG Eastwood Cinema in the Eastwood Towne Center is an awesome place to catch a flick and they have those cool new extreme seats you may want to check out, and 3D and all that good stuff too.

Celebration Cinema on Lansings South Side is also great and they offer the unmatched IMAX experience, which you simply have to experience to understand.

Also an awesome place to catch a flick is Studio C! in Okemos, in the out lot of the Meridian Mall. This facility not only offers a comfy movie experience but also full blown restaurant and bar amenities. Want more than popcorn and M&Ms at your movie? You got it. How about a cold beer and some gourmet sliders? Or a glass of wine and a wrap sandwich? Youve got it! And brought to you at your seat by a waiter? Oh, cmon? Really? Yup. Its very cool.

But maybe that's just not enough. Looking for more than a common theater viewing experience? Tired of being bottled up creatively and what to do a little more than sit back and watch a film? How about making one of your own?! That's right! In partnership with the Capitol City Film Festival the Greater Lansing Convention and Visitors Bureau is proud to announce the "Love Letters to Lansing film Contest!" What's that all about?
